The divisions of Bangladesh are divided into 64[1] districts, or zila (কুষ্টিয়া জিলা/কুষ্টিয়া জেলা=Zela/zila). The capital of a district is called a district seat (zila sadar). The districts are further subdivided into 493 sub-districts or upazila (কুষ্টিয়া উপজেলা upojela).

History

Before independence, Bangladesh (then known as East Pakistan) had 20 districts.
